Painting Winter Trees - Christmas Art Project

Toddler-Net on Facebook
This project contributes to the development of children's motor skills and imagination. For 4-6 year old kids.

Materials:
1. A sheet of thick paper
2. A couple of brushes
3. A set of tempera or watercolor paints
4. A jar of water for washing brushes

Ask your child to color the top half of a sheet of paper with a medium blue color. This will be the sky. Let it dry and add some clouds using white paint.
While the clouds are drying, ask your child if trees have leaves in winter and what trees stay green in winter. Explain how tree is shaped (it's thicker near the ground and the top branches are very thin). Ask your child to paint a tree starting from the bottom of a sheet. Let the painting dry again.
Meanwhile, talk about how snow falls, how it stays on the ground and helps trees to not freeze. Finally, ask your child to paint some snow falling and lying on the ground and on trees.
